Leadership Development

Take the lead! Central Michigan University takes great pride in our deliberate and dedicated approach to cultivating true leadership.

Leadership by doing

The world needs leaders of every kind, and we prepare them. Here is where you’ll explore your purpose and discover your strengths. Our student leaders come together to be the change their communities — and the world — need through volunteering, service-learning, working, and Study Abroad experiences.

"We need to educate students who will be change-makers, innovators, and visionaries. We need individuals who will not simply be great at their jobs but who will work hard to improve their communities through civic engagement and service."
